Big Points at the Big House Spur Big Poll Jump

#22 Michigan and California played an awesome game involving TDs in all 3 phases, 4 turnovers, and nonstop fun plays. Now, it's #15 Michigan and #25 California.

Adroit Kenyon in Detroit

RB Kenyon Randall capped off an epic game, as the 5-0 Lions defeated the 6-0 Chiefs 33-27 in overtime. His 71-yard run left the Lions as victors.

Massive Victory

UMass beat Eastern Michigan 20-17. This is their third win in program history, second over an FBS team, and the first FBS victory not over Liberty.

Bow to Royalty

Washington's offense put up 49 on the Bengals. Tanner Bowman had 459 yards and 5 TD for a perfect passer rating, as first rounder Maurice White added 150 on the ground.

Tony Peaks. Went from All Pro to retirement in two seasons due to an ACL

Emmett Spears was really starting to find a rhythm for me when he tore his ACL.  Never really looked very good since then.

Might not be the greatest effect, but Anthony Fasani went from possibly the best TE in the league to a middling TE fighting for a job following his injury

Kevin Richards.  He tore his ACL and retired on the spot.

Booker T Washington went from really good to doing nothing after his injury a few years ago.

Bo Woodall is my answer.  
His rookie year, in his first 7 games, he caught 6 TDs. IIRC, this was tied for 2nd in the league. 

 

He injured his knee in week 8.  He did come back and play in the 2nd half of the season.  His final season TD total was 6 TDs.  

This is also his career high.

He started his career with such promise as a young WR2/Slot WR and had a bunch of chemistry building with AJJ, but that knee injury kind of derailed that.  Hopefully he can turn it around eventually, but I think his career is going to be a big what-if for me.

Richards was a Pro Bowler and the workhorse back on a back-to-back NFC CCG team. I would argue this MAY have been the most costly career-ending injury in League history.

2016 Blake Shell :( Granted it was only a couple games in when he got hurt but he had found a rhythm and hasn't really been able to get back to it since. Not as great of a player as some of the others though

I would actually agree with you.  The Saints were playing really well that season prior to the injury, once Richards went down and they had Paul Gibbs at RB it kind of derailed the rest of the season.  I think they finished with 9 wins, but they were on pace to be much better than that.
